I love to dance the hula, swim and look for treasures at the beach.
I am from Germany, but Rome is one of my favorite cities. During my studies in Germany, I was able to spend one year in L’Aquila with the Erasmus Program. At that point my Italian was pretty alright but I haven’t used it a lot ever since… and we all know what happens after that. I love Italy and the Italian way of life and I probably would live there by now, if I wouldn’t have found Kaua’i, which IS paradise!
After high school, I spent one year in South Africa and volunteered in a children’s home for orphans. After that experience I decided, not to have my own children, but rather support children in need that are not as well off as I was growing up.
I travelled a lot in Europe, went on an extended trip to Brazil and was looking for the next travel destination when my co-worker suggested Kaua’i: Tropics, Mountains, Beaches and no serious poverty – that was my wish-list and I found it all….
Therefore it was on my first trip to Kaua’i in 2009 during which I met my future husband Mark. A year later, I moved…. this turned out to be one of the most live-changing decisions I ever made and I am very grateful that since ever than things are falling into place for me. I have found a wonderful ‘Ohana (Hawaiian for extended family) in my Hula Sisters and most of all in Sandy, who is not only dancing Hula with me, but is my landlady and my husband’s friend since 1981. She is a real estate broker and handed the management of her vacation rentals over to me after she retired.
My husband Mark is an artist and has his own website (markpearsonart) to display his work. I love his artwork – check it out if you have time! In Germany, I used to work with Towers Watson in Frankfurt as an actuary. Now I am a property manager, housekeeper, Hula dancer and much more. You will find me quite often dancing at Tahiti Nui in Hanalei on Wednesday, when my Kumu (Hula-Teacher) sings and plays wonderful Hawaiian music.
Currently, the purpose of my travels is to connect with my and Mark’s family and friends in Germany and at the East Coast. But who knows, maybe one day we will cross the country in a VW-Bus, but this is along ways down the road….
